Yoga

Yogic exercises can help with diabetes. When practiced as part of a daily yoga routine of breathing exercises, meditation and poses, these exercises enhance digestion and help the pancreas and liver function more normally, regulating blood sugar levels.

Here are two exercises useful for diabetes:

Stand with your feet spread shoulder-width apart. Bend forward, with your hands on your knees. Then exhale through your mouth. When your breath is gone, close your throat so that no air will enter your lungs. Now expand your chest, as if breathing, and suck in your abdominal muscles tightly, forming a hollow space. As you do so, try to relax your muscles. Stay in this position until you need to breathe, then relax and inhale slowly. 

Now go into abdominal pumping. Release the muscles so that your stomach returns to its normal position, then suck in the abdominal muscles again. Pump your abdomen in and out until you need to breathe. Release slowly and breathe normally. Repeat the entire exercise three times.

Because of the impact of these exercises on the circulatory system, don't do them during menstruation or pregnancy, after surgery, if you are bleeding or if you have heart disease or high blood pressure.
